I had a 2 level PLIF on 9/16 about 10 days ago. I am on lorab 10 and soma for pain. I was on soma and lortab 7.5 prior to surgery. I have had my gall badder removed 18 months ago and really my bowels have not been the same - sorta loose even with pain meds - but since this surgery I did not have a bm for about 5 days and now they won't stop. I feel dehydrated - sorta like a stomach virus thingy - but I wondered if anyone had this problem after surgery. I thought that maybe the gallbladder is having a hard time getting rid of the anesthesia or something?
